It is with great sadness that we report the death of Jean Beaudry who passed away on Saturday, February 18, 2023 at the age of 56 following a long battle with illness.
Jean Beaudry joined BroadSign as COO and VP Finance back in January 2014. He was eloquent, kind, organised, professional and well loved and respected within Broadsign and the wider industry. Prior to Broadsign he held a number of senior leadership positions at Microsoft, Avid/Softimage and Autodesk.
We understand that Jean was diagnosed with cancer in 2020. His friends and family said that he “fought for more than three years with extraordinary tenacity, courage and persistence” and indeed, for all those who knew him will agree with the statement that they would “expect nothing less from Jean”.
Jean is survived by his children Lambert, Simon and Véronique, his wife Glenda, his brother Pierre, his ex-wife Sylvie-Léa and their daughter Norah.
The family and his spouse Glenda said that they would like to thank the oncology and palliative care departments at CHUM and especially Dr. Aubin, the pivot nurse Véronique and Dr. Thibeault for all their good care and advice as well as their precious listening.
Sadly, the industry has lost another good guy.
